Hilda Johnson Obituary

Hilda M. Johnson, a loving, kind, and passionate woman, passed away peacefully in her home in Knoxville, TN on November 27, 2023. Born on June 4, 1953, in Oliver Springs, TN, Hilda lived a full, vibrant life characterized by her unwavering love and kindness towards others.

Hilda was a woman of many interests, but she had a particular fondness for shopping and dancing. Her love for shopping was not just about acquiring material things, but it was a reflection of her generous spirit. She took pleasure in finding the perfect gifts for her loved ones, consistently demonstrating her thoughtfulness. Dancing, on the other hand, was Hilda's way of expressing herself. Whether she was swaying to a slow song or swinging to a lively tune, Hilda danced with a passion and joy that was infectious to those around her.

Hilda was a beloved wife to her late husband, David Johnson, who she missed dearly. Their love story was one for the ages, filled with a mutual respect and adoration that was evident to everyone who knew them. Hilda was also a devoted mother to her son, Paul Gribble, who survives her. Hilda's love for Paul was evident in everything she did, and their bond was a testament to her unwavering dedication as a mother.

Those who knew Hilda will remember her not only for her kindness and passion but also for her resilience. Despite the trials and tribulations she faced in her life, Hilda never lost her loving spirit. She had a way of making those around her feel cherished and valued, and her legacy of love will continue to live on in the hearts of those she touched.

As we remember Hilda, we celebrate her life and the joy she brought to everyone around her. Her kindness, passion, and love will forever be remembered by her son, her extended family, and the many friends she made throughout her life. Hilda M. Johnson was a beacon of light in this world, and her spirit will continue to shine brightly in the memories of those who loved her.
